Yes I did report it, which was a real pain in the ass took two hours and a long trek across the site. The crime stats that are on Avon and Somerset website are for this year at least are quoted on monday morning. "As of Monday morning, as people go home, there have been 242 crimes - which is about 20% less than last year."
To be fair it does say later in the article "It's not too late for anyone who has got home and found property missing to report it to us." but I can't find any other info on their website about Glastonbury crime stats.
Also the hassle of reporting a crime may mean that there are quite a few that go unreported? 242 for 175,000 is incredibly low for a weekend of people staying in unsecured places though. I don't think that I was the only one of 242 (ok it was last year for me so one of 280somthing).
I 100% agree there are people who are consciously trying to not leave things to waste, and there are far too many tents that are left. However the idea that things that are "unattended" on the monday are somehow fair game is wrong in my opinion. There is also the fact that people going rummaging around looking in tents on the monday makes it much easier for thieves to get away with doing the same. As progue said in an earlier post the tatting should maybe be at least discouraged until later in the day on the monday.
To be honest what annoyed me about your post was that you were telling me I was a fool for sleeping in my own tent on the monday and expecting my stuff to be still be there when I woke up. There are some thefts from tents during the festival, I do not see what can be done about that beyond what is, however on the monday it is another level. You would take exception with someone looking in a number of tents on the days of the festival however as it is some how acceptable to be tatting on the monday no one batts an eyelid over people unzipping other peoples tents. This makes it far easier for thieves to blend in, which is never going to be a good thing.
PS some tatters may unzip a tent to look inside and realise that it is not abandoned and walk off, but the next person may see a tent still unzipped and then think it has been abandoned.
There is something wrong with what is happening on the monday in my opinion.
